Cards Take Down Dayton in Offensive Showcase
With some players recovering from minor injuries and getting rest before the upcoming match against Vanderbilt we saw a few different faces in the starting lineup.
One of those new faces put the first goal in for the Cards as Taylor Kerwin's goal 59 seconds in was the quickest of the season for the Cards.
Less than four minutes later Snyder joined in on the scoring. The sophomore received a pass from Emina Ekic and took the shot over the goalkeeper's head.
Louisville would go into the locker room at halftime with a 3-0 lead.
Lana Batson was in the game for less than five minutes as Gabby Kouzelos' sub before the Flyers found the back of the net against her.
The Cards had an answer, though, as Brooklynn Rivers took in a pass from Callie McKinney and took the shot from the right side of the box. Rivers was limited to 23 minutes, all in the second half, as she is recovering from an ankle injury. It was 4-1 Louisville, but the fireworks offensively for each team weren't over yet.
The Cards finished the scoring on the night off a set piece. Ekic placed a ball perfectly near the far post where Sarah Hernandez was waiting to head the ball in. Hernandez's other goal this year came on a similar situation. The Cards and Flyers remained scoreless the rest of the way and Karen Ferguson Dayes' crew prevail in a "tale of two halves" 5-2 win.
The Cards prepare for a Vanderbilt team ranked #9 in the country. The Cards and Commodores will kick off at 6:00 pm at Lynn Stadium Sunday night. Please note the earlier start time than normal.
Following the match we caught up with Taylor Kerwin and Sarah Hernandez. Kerwin's goal was the first of the season for her while Hernandez now has two on the year.
